Din Tai Fung Well known across the world - Din Tai Fung has 160 restaurants in America, China and beyond - the Taiwanese makers of seriously good steamed dumplings opened their first European restaurant in London's Covent Garden in 2018. This is the place to go for their famous xiao long bao (steamed pork dumplings), made with pork filling and wrapped in a pleated, twisted delicate dough and steamed. Pinched to a precise 18 folds (minimum), each dumpling is created with an astute eye for accuracy. The bao pass through six different stations, each manned by a different team of highly trained dim sum chefs. Other well-known dishes include the steamed chicken soup, simmered for six hours. Tea is a serious business in Taiwan and here at the flagship Din Tai Fung restaurant they serve traditional Chinese tea as well as Taiwan-inspired cocktails at the bar. Handpicked oolong tea leaves and jasmine blossoms are just two of the specialist teas you can sip on in this pared back restaurant where oriental grey tiles, hard wood and rattan are set against a collection of artworks by Singaporean painter, Tan Oe Pang, who created the paintings specifically for this Covent Garden site.
